According to Reuters, the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday rejected efforts to the practice of manipulating electoral district boundaries to entrench one party in power by turning away challenges to political maps in Maryland and North Carolina.
The justices ruled in a decision with nationwide implications that judges do not have the ability to curb the practice known as partisan gerrymandering.
The court sided with lawmakers and legislators who drew electoral district boundaries that were challenged by voters.
All of the conservative members agreed with the ruling, while the liberal members were in dissent of the 5-4 ruling.
